Thread: Bootloop on Windows 10 - Recovered data....What next

  1. #1

    Default Bootloop on Windows 10 - Recovered data....What next

    I subscribed to the Windows insider and was surprised when my pc was stuck in a bootloop. I scoured the net and nothing helped and eventually used a windows 10 bootdisk. Because of the windows partitions, i didnt loose too much data.

    I managed to recover my emails, I did loose a few estimates and invoices on Quickbooks. My laptop has a SSD, i assumed its a more stable drive.

    I do use a limited amount of cloud storage. How do you guys protect/backup your data? I was considering a desktop purely for work.... or a network storage drive. Any suggestions?

    I dont want to be in that situation again

    thanks

    no its perfectly fine. i keep a 500GB HDD, that i dock once a month to update my backup. HDD is stored away from my pc so if the pc gets stolen or such i still have important files like family photos etc.
    One does not simply come up with a new signature..

    Hardly..

    Its probably the most stable and performant version of Windows ever released.

    Return to basics and apply the rule of 3-2-1 ..

    3 copies of your data, on 2 different types of media, 1 stored off site.

    I cheat a bit. I use a Raided NAS for local backups, and important data files also go to cloud.

    In general my aim is always to be in a position where I can wipe my primary workstation, and be up and running in a few hours with minimal to no data loss.

    Thank you Zuner, I think a NAS Drive will be easier and suite me well
